Vita Coco Coconut Water with Peach & Mango Healthy Drink

26

Recently, local stores are packed with Vita Coco and I thought it must be good. So I grabbed a Peach and Mango flavor to try. On the label it says “Imported from Brazil” and it’s 100% pure coconut water. Even though it’s all natural, but the drink is not certified organic yet. The story behind Vita Coco was two friends chatting with couple ladies who were from Brazil one night in Soho New York and asked them what they missed most. The ladies said “agua de coco.” Couple years later, Vita Coco is in your local supermarket. Now, I’m not sure what the original intention was by talking to those ladies, but they got themselves a business.

Taste

Upon peeling off the aluminum cover, you can smell a strong mango scent coming out from the aluminum bottle and you can’t really smell any coconut or peach aroma. The color of the drink is very cloudy and thick. It looks like a pineapple juice drink. After first few sips, you can tell the most dominate taste is obviously the coconut flavor and with the addition of not so convincing mango taste. As for the peach, it must have slipped it away or forgot to add it because the taste does not exist. However, this drink is very refreshing, delicious and not sweet at all. It feels like you are drinking right out of the real thing and it naturally rehydrate better than water with additional benefits. Also, there’s no aftertaste at all.

Nutrition

What can you get from this healthy drink? Well, it hydrates naturally with five electrolytes:  Potassium, Sodium, Magnesium, Calcium and Phosphorous. “These electrolytes work to keep the body cool, help boost poor circulation, replenish your body’s fluids after exercising, and aid in the detoxification process while boosting your immune system.” The coconut water is from young green Brazilian coconuts and they are fat free. The other two ingredients are Mango puree and Peach puree. They are all 100% natural. It is recommended that you should take it with you if you are going to jogging, running or intense exercise.

Overall

I love this healthy beverage because of the taste and the benefits that comes with it. It’s a good alternative for other drinks that contains high sugar. It would be better if it’s packaged with plastic bottle because you don’t need to worry if you drop it on the concrete floor and you can take it with you to every where you go. Vita Coco on the Go!

    I like the original coconut water the best, my second favorite is the acai & pomegranate. They’re all pretty great though!

    The acai & pomegranate might be an acquired taste. I tried it and to put it lightly found it unpleasant. The flavor had a weird aftertaste that I found tastes a little like medicine.

    Highly recommend Vita Coco atleast once a day. It hydrates you faster than Gatorade or water!

    I used to drink Gatorade after a workout….until I learned about the benefits of all-natural Vita Coco. Not only does it replenish my body with electrolytes but I feel like a brand new person after just one! I highly suggest you try it!

    Vita Coco has high level of potassium that you need after workout. It has many health benefits also.

    100% natural! It definitely does the trick – I’m constantly drinking it after work outs. Not bad for after a hangover as well :)

    I love the taste of Vita Coco, and actually think that the cardboard container helps the coconut water stay fresh and taste great. I’ve tried Zico, but think that the plastic bottle gives it an almost metal-like after taste (not good). Vita Coco is LOADED with benefits, I’m a huge fan.

    I just cannot stand the plastic bottle taste of Zico. I thought I give a shot because it’s cheaper than Vita Coco and I was disappointed and will never buy Zico again. Although Vita Coco it’s more pricey but quality of the drink speaks for itself!! I love Vita Coco Pineapple!

    No wonder Vita Coco is in the top best selling list on Amazon.

    Not only is Vita Coco 100% natural, but there’s also no fats or preservatives which makes it extremely healthy for you. I agree that the cardboard packaging is an added plus, not to mention that you can easily place it in your bag when you’re on the go.

    Been drinking this a lot at the gym – my trainer said it was great for post workout and is refreshing and hydrating. It’s also filled with electrolytes which is key for me since I’m always running around. Great product, definitely worth a try.

    I read all the rave reviews about Vita Coco and had to go out and try it, I’m so glad I did because this beverage is the best! I cannot stop drinking it, between how good it is and how good it is for you (it has more potassium than a banana!) Nothing can beat Vita!
